How to schedule a script and setup email notification via Task scheduler or any other way?

As I have gone through some blogs and online links but its shows traditional ways and seems "Email Send" option is deprecated in Task Scheduler.

    Hello

    As send-mailmessage is not recommended in powershell anymore you could use a third party like Mail Slurp. Then run the PowerShell script using task scheduler

    2. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.utility/send-mailmessage?view=powershell-7.4
    3. https://sid-500.com/2022/08/17/how-to-include-your-powershell-7-scripts-in-task-scheduler/

    Hope this helps.
